How fire insurance works

Most of the fire insurance company provides coverage if the fire is originated from the inside of the house. One thing you must keep in mind that the coverage range depends on the cause of the fire.

For example, if the property price is $ 300,000 USD and the property value is fallen down on the market place up to 30%, then the fire insurance policy will provide a coverage of  70% of your main property value and in the calculation which will be $ 210,000 USD.
